How to get to Park Güell ?
The Park is off-centre. We must prepare this visit carefully :
- The tourist bus (blue route), which we mentioned in two of our packages, will drop you off just a stone's throw from Parc Guell, which is great. The stop is on the Travessera de Dalt at a 10 minute walk and it is recommended to reach it by the Carrer de Larrard (main entrance).
- Park Guell by bus: Bus 24 leaves from Plaça Catalunya and leaves you not far from the park. The other bus lines are H6, 32 and 92.
- Park Guell Metro : get off at Lesseps L3 or Vallcarca L3 metro stations and walk about 20 minutes. The Vallcarca station is located at the summit of the park where you will only have to go down towards the main entrance. The Lesseps station is located at the bottom of the Park, so you will have to climb using escalators.
- By taxi, it is very practical and fast but a little expensive. From the city center count 13-16 euros the race. Same price for the return. There is a taxi stand at the main entrance.

The Gaudi Houde
Gaudí lived until the end of his life in this house which became a museum (Casa-Museu Gaudí).

The Monumental Staircase
At the main entrance, in front of you, you will find the monumental staircase composed of several stairs and fountains, the most famous is shaped like a mosaic salamander, symbol of the city.

The Sala Hipóstila, composed of 86 six-metre high columns, was to serve as a market and alludes to a forest. On the ceiling of this room, circles of mosaics represent the four seasons and the lunar cycles.
The Wavy Bench of the Square of Nature
The Place de la Nature, a kind of ancient agora, is the most emblematic part of the park. Its long mosaic bench and one of the most photographed monuments in Barcelona. Gaudi used more than anywhere else the technique of the "trencadis" which consisted in reusing fragments of recycled ceramics to make new decorative motifs, typical of Catalan modernist architecture. The Plaza de la Nación offers a beautiful panoramic view of Barcelona.
The Park and the Calvary
A short walk through the park will take you to the Austrian gardens, a viaduct and the Calvary, the highest point on the hill.
